Success in Law School: The Collection

Posted by Library Blog on 08/20/2015 at 03:09 PM

If you have been in the library in the last two weeks you may have noticed the collection of books being featured atop the Reference shelves. You may have been too busy with the start of classes to pay much attention to these books, but this is your chance to rectify that!

Success in Law School CollectionThe Success in Law School Collection was curated to help new and returning students transition from Summer to Fall. These books will help you discover resources in the library’s collection about all things related to law school success, from time management tips to study planning suggestions. While some of the resources focus on how to maintain a healthful work/life balance, others are more traditional canonical texts about the law school experience itself.

The books included in the collection contain information about note-taking, outlining, and exam-taking. The library’s LawGuide titled “TimeSaver: Introduction to the Study of Law” contains a list of the books on display in addition to online resources to promote law student success. In addition to the LawGuide, the library has a Pinterest page which features the collection.

FIinally, the books featured in this collection are just one small step to a successful law school experience. RWU School of Law’s Academic Success Program hosts many events and workshops to encourage and support law student success. The objectives of the Academic Success Program include “helping law students discover their particular needs and learning styles, equipping them with the academic tools they need to meet the challenges of law school with self-assurance, and encouraging them to monitor their own progress as they adjust their study practices to achieve their personal goals.” For more information on RWU School of Law’s Academic Success Program, email Kathy Thompson, Director.
